Random Thoughts

Why do people think that if you drive a nice car you must be rich?

Why do the girls in the family help their elderly parents more than the boys?

Why do people say “stick and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt,” when research shows that words do hurt and cause major damage to self esteem?

Why do men fall immediately to sleep after they have sex?

Why do people want to act as if they contributed financially to an office or family gift when they know they didn’t but they are the first to grab the card and try to sign their name as if they did?

Why am I writing this blog when I should be finishing up my newspaper column?

If you drive a really nice car then I sure as heck hope you are rich. I, for one, am tired of folks, particularly black folks, riding around in flossy cars and buying other crap they know they don't have the money to be buying.

There is this guy on my block living in a medium size house like mine and he is driving a $75,000 Hummer. It's a ridiculous waste of money for a middle class person.

I can answer only a few of your very good questions. The rest have me baffled too.

PS: Get back to work now!

I really think that the sticks and stones part is becuase they want to think words that people say to them done mean anything, but deep down inside it does mean something? Who knows.

Rose, I love this one

Why do people say “stick and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt,” when research shows that words do hurt and cause major damage to self esteem?

Words can cut like a knife.

1. Why do people drive really nice cars if they can't affod them (Driving a Lexus and living with your mother just doesn't get it)?

2. Women are more nurturing

3. Kids will be kids. Now when you hear and adult use the "stick and stones" line, then we have problems

4. I agree with Clay . . . you shouldn't be mad about it, consider it an accomplishment. I'm pretty sure you'd much rather us go to sleep instead of going to the gym for a workout.

5. I have been trying to figure this one out for the last 5 years. Too many people at my job are like that.

6. Blogging is addictive.

The second question is so interesting. I think it because women are trained to be more nurturing and caring than men are. It is thought of as a women's responsibility to care for the elderly and children. If women stopped doing this work for free and demanded economic compensation then the entire economy would be turned on its head, but women would never do that. There's a social stigma attached to not doing right by your family.

Regarding the nice car ... in many instances that is exactly the impression the driver wants to make. Knowing full well they don't have pot nor window.

I'd rather be hit with a stick or a stone than with a nasty comment.

The Gig said...

LOL, LOL, cute blog. I agree that words can sometimes bring as much or more than the sticks and stones. As to why people think you are rich when you drive a new car is, I would guess that those people can't be black because black folks know that since we can't afford big fancy homes, we buy cars and park them in front of our raggedy homes. Oh --- I'm just kidding. That used to be a saying back in my day.

Dee said...

Ruben said...

I fall to sleep after sex because I'm usually dissapointed by the other person's performance.LOL

PINKSandROSES said...

now, i could pretend to know these answers and try to sound smart... but i won't cause that's pointless. i'll just sit here and enjoy knowing that there are other clueless people out there other than me

Bougie said...

all the why's and no answer? Why? :)

princessdominique said...

Great post and great questions. That definitely should be food for thought especially the boys in the family who don't help out as much as they should. That one really burns me up.

Michelle said...

Why do people eat/drink the last of something and don't discard the containers? Life is funny and full of ?s

With the exception of the sticks and stones why and the boys helping the elderly why -- this gave me a laff -- especially #5. For the record some women fall asleep immediately after sex too (or so I've heard!)

Brownsoul said...

Love the random thoughts! LOL!

I have a few:

Why do some folk by nice cars to front like they have a lot of money but are really up to there eyeballs in debt?

Why do I consider falling to sleep right after sex somewhat a good thing?

E said...

All very good questions...:-)
